Huh.  Perhaps this causes different behavior depending on whether the
_use_ of apply-partially happens in a file with lexical-binding being
`nil'?  Or the use of the function defined using it?

After all, apply-partially was first defined when lexical binding was
not available in Emacs.  So some uses might depend on particular
semantics in non-lexical-binding files?

I am just blindly guessing here.
